    I fully agree with everyone on the negative affects the gravel pit will have on our water.We deserve good quality water that we receive from our wells. Why a another gravel pit that we DO NOT NEED has that right to take this away from us in the surrounding area is beyond my understanding. I am also very concerned about the poor air quality . My back yard is right next to the pit. I have COPD and am on oxygen at night. I do not wish to live my life on oxygen 24 hours a day because I have difficulty breathing. from poor air quality caused by the gravel pit.I have a right to sit outside on my Sun deck without dust , dirt etc. Also crushed concrete if that is allowed.If the wind is blowing our way it will be impossible to enjoy sitting outside for some fresh air.What right do you have to take that away from me? We already have 3 gravel pits in this area that affects our quality of air.WE DO NOT NEED ANOTHER GRAVEL PIT. Thank you for allowing me to voice my opinion. My health as well as everyone else should be strongly taken into consideration. Thank you for turning the proposal down. You are our voice so please continue to support us , the community.Thanks again.

    Ontario and Canada must protect and preserve farm land for Food Production — Now and For our Future. Do NOT use our precious agricultural lands for industrial, commercial and residential development.
